    Right now, whenever I boot my Ubuntu 9.10/Win7 labtop, it goes straight into GRUB loader. Is there anyway so that it's defaulted to Win7 and then if I want to use Ubuntu I have to choose it? I've tried looking in the Win7 startup menu in the Control Panel but Ubuntu's not on the list.

    If you boot into Ubuntu, there's a program you can install called Startup Manager which allows you to set Windows 7 to be the default choice in Grub, among other things.
